New Games For The Color Computer

Two new games, Reactoid and Gomoku/Renju, have been released by Radio Shack. Both are written for the TRS-80 Color Computer with at least 16K memory.

Reactoid is a futuristic action game in which the player finds himself at the world's first nuclear fusion reactor, where the automatic system has failed. With a joystick, the player must guide stray energy particles, which are slowly melting the core of the reactor, to the appropriate energy posts. All the posts must be lit up to advance to the next round.

Gomoku/Renju, based on ancient oriental strategy games, has eight levels of play. Each game (Renju is more difficult) can be played against the computer or another person.

The title screen from Randamn shows the unfriendly faces you're likely to meet if you take on the "Mystic Slot Machine."

The games sell for $19.95 each.
